9 Last-Minute Dinner Ideas
For nights when even ordering takeout isn't fast enough, here are simple meals you can throw together with whatever ingredients you have around.
If you have butternut squash...
Turn it into soup. Cook a chopped onion in a few tablespoons of butter for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, peel, seed and chop a butternut squash into 1-inch chunks. When the onion is soft, add the squash and 6 cups of chicken or vegetable stock. Simmer until the squash is tender, 20 minutes or so. Puree with an immersion blender and season with nutmeg, salt and pepper.
